Apparently, I brought a tiger home from summer camp yesterday. 

Is it bad that I take pictures of my kid's sad faces, too? I am still trying to capture the elusive fat lip in a picture. And don't worry he stopped crying shortly thereafter, he was just way over tired and needed a snuggle. 

(ps. it is hot and muggy again today so I sort of feel like how Huck looks. Sometimes the heat just makes you cranky.)

Just a couple of quick, cute shots so that I don't fall behind on the 52 project! My sweet big boy picking flowers for me on our soon to be bailed on hike from our trip out to Spectacle Island last weekend when it was hot, hot, hot. Too hot to drag a 4 1/2 year old and a 10 week old up a hill to see the view of the city. Next time, perhaps. 

And oh my goodness, look at the sweet, sweet toes! I love baby toes and Huck is already growing so fast! A friend over the weekend asked us if we were feeding him growth hormones...he is quite big. He does not necessarily look like a 10 week old so I am trying to capture all of the delightful small bits before he grows out of them.

out and about

I was going through a bunch of photos which I have taken as of late and I found a bit of theme running through them; roads, paths and walkways seem to pop up routinely and they are all more or less symmetrical. So I grabbed a few and cropped them all the same and I quite like the contrast of the beach, the pastoral, the urban all sitting pretty lined up against one another creating an unintended thematic way to capture our adventures out and about.

A new haircut and summer is in full swing. Ollie is going to a day camp for a few hours and gets to run around with buddies and then when the weather is nice (which thankfully has been often) we hit the park, the pool or suss out a walkable activity such as the farmer's market or a froyo trip. It has overall been an enjoyable summer with a few frustrations around a 4 1/2 year old who wants to what he wants and can throw some serious shade and eye rolls if he is feeling put out. It's a process that's for sure. 

Huck had his 2 month appointment this week. He was a super happy and jovial baby until the needles came out. Poor kiddo had been hamming it up for the nurse and then she goes and jabs him in his legs three times! Of course Huck went beet red and screamed his face off but as soon as I picked him up he stopped crying and just looked at me like, why did you let that lady do that to me?! Here are his stats: 13.5lbs (78%), 23.25 inches (66%), 41.8 cm noggin (99%).

my two bugs snuggling in the morning.

Huck, in repose.

Last night while I was cooking dinner I posted on Facebook a couple of pictures of Huck snoozing on the couch. He continued to snooze and move about into various lounging positions so I kept taking pictures. So I give you; Huck, in repose, series 1.1

Love it: Etsy: anewall

I am still trying to keep my eyes out for creative people, places and things even in the fog of Huck's newborn phase.  I came across this beautiful Etsy site, called "anewall" a.new.wall. The shop is run by two friends and their goal is to create a unique, extraordinary accent wall in your home. I love the bold graphic designs of the murals but they also have large-scale photographs of nature and vintage items.

a hot & muggy day calls for a walk to the froyo shop before going to the wednesday farmer's market to get delicious blueberries.  

I mean really!? that is one happy chunk of a baby. 8 weeks old and living it up.
